Consumer Complaint: XXXX -2017 To whom it may concern : I would like to file a complaint against Financial Corporation of America, this collection agency has been harassing me for medical bills that I do not owe to XXXX XXXX XXXX / XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX . I have notified this collection agency more than once, that I do not owe any outstanding medical debt to XXXX XXXX y XXXX / XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX , yet they continue to bill me, as well as call my telephone. I have contacted my insurance companies regarding these debts, and they have never received any claims for any of these amounts. What is going on is that I feel that I am purposely being targeted for harassment by XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX because they have previously tried to bill me for fraudulent medical procedures that were not performed on me, as well as I was previously charged by them for self-administered medication that I could not have given to myself due to the fact that I was under XXXX , as well as they previously billed my insurances for extended stay in the recovery room when that was not the truth. I had contacted their administration regarding the fraudulent charges that they continue to bill me for since last year, and their administration did nothing, they were supposed to contact me back, and they never did. So I have made a claim to XXXX for the fraudulent charges for the medical procedures that were never performed on me, and they are being investigated, and this is why XXXX XXXX XXXX / XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX has been harassing me. They have sent me bills in the past with several consecutive dates of service, as though I was in the hospital for several consecutive dates, when my stay at their hospital has always been half a day and never for consecutive dates, and I have always gone home the same day after my procedures.
I owe none of the Fraudulent debts that Financial Corporation of America is billing me for, and I want any derogatory information that they have placed on my credit files removed, and hard copy proof provided to me on their letterhead that this has been done. I want Financial Corporation of America to cease and desist from contacting me, I have told them more than once that I do not owe these debts, yet they continue to harass me, and they are leaving me no choice, but to seek legal action against them.
